About Jonathan Griffin Tompkins

Jonathan Griffin Tompkins and Sarah Ann Hyatt Tompkin were tenant farmers, who acquired middle-class status only shortly before his birth when they purchased a farm near Scarsdale. Jonathan Griffin Tompkins joined several local resistance committees during the Revolution, serving as an adjutant in the county militia. After the war, he served several years as a town supervisor and as a delegate to the state legislature.
